Bye & Bye lyrics

Words and music by bob dylan

By and by, Im breathin a lovers sigh
While Im sittin on my watch so I can be on time
Im singin loves praises with sugar coated rhyme
By and by, on you Im castin my eye
Im paintin the town, swingin my partner around
Well I know who I can depend on, I know who to trust
Im watchin the road, Im studyin the dust

Im paintin the town, makin my last go-round
Well Im scufflin and Im shufflin and Im walkin on briars
Im not even aquainted with my own desires
Im rollin slow, Im doin all I know
Im tellin myself Ive found true happiness
That I still got a dream that hasnt been repossessed
Im rollin slow goin where the wild roses grow

Well, the future for me is already a thing of the past
You were my first love and you will be my last
Papa gone mad, mama shes feelin sad
Well, Im gonna baptize you in fire so you can sin no more
I wanna establish my rule through civil war
Gonna make you see just how loyal and true a man can be
